Crafting galore

The creative space thing has been happening big time over at my place, in my standards anyhow.  There has been sewing, as well as building, painting, hooking and stitching.  It's all been a bit exciting to have been getting so much done, even if there are still are humungous stack of wip's lying around and it seems a bit ridiculous to start anymore!

Ahh well, after I have finished off these, I think it is time to delve into the wip box, right down the bottom to something I started probably about 3 or 4 years ago now.  These sort of things are all over the place now but at the time there wasn't anything like it that I had found!

But onto the stuff I'm doing right now...


 Check out this awesome little mini lego kitty I got from a friend when I was in hospital last, I keep forgetting to show you! It was quite fiddly to build, what with the mild shakes I have from the medication but it was good fun.

 I also stitched this little snowflake ornament using this pattern that I bought ages ago meaning to make some for Christmas and never got around to.  Nothing like starting the Christmas crafting early!  And I do have to ask, does anyone have any tips on sewing with metallic threads? It was such a pain, they kept untwisting and getting caught and knotted.  But pretty once it's done.


I mentioned a while ago I was having a go at my first ATC - well here it is, complete with fluffy painted cloud (which I'm very proud of) and lacy raindrops.

 I've been using this very lovely book from the library to whip up some assorted body parts for a few cute little amigurumi critters.  Can you guess what I'm making?

I've also been hooking up a little pattern for a pencil/hook case, I'm going for a scallopped edge look...


And finally, I made up this little flower pouch for a swap.  I lined it with the same fabric I used for the flowers.  Mitred cornered are getting closer to being aligned!

What have you been up to in the creative world lately?

You are on a roll, and a very creative one at that! Love the christmas ornament, it is a lovely idea and I adore your little pouch, those flowers on it are so pretty and I love the green bottom, well done. We had some of that mini lego too, fun isn't it :-)

Aren't the nano blocks great?? I gave Santa and reindeer as gifts. I made the Santa and there were so many tiny pieces. Love your zippy pouch and the cute flowers.I want to day you are making a kangaroo!! Love the Christmassy embroidery. My only advice is to use very short lengths of the thread. Same thing happens to me.

Looks like you are having a lot of fun in your crafty space!! I especially like the lacy raindrops and that crochet animal. Is it one of the cats? And the button on the flower is such a cute touch! Happy crafting!
